By Pamela Pattison Lash (updated 2010)
The couple was married on 7 July 1874 in Toledo, Lucas Co, OH. Lilly, a resident of Ohio for 16 years, charged Robert with willfully abandoning her and their son, Freddie (8) on 10 Sept 1880. The action was continued and later dismissed, even though the legal notice appeared in the "Edgerton Observer", 22 Feb 1884, for six consecutive weeks.
